Chelsea to be without suspended Cahill, Fabregas for Tottenham match

But Liverpool came out fighting after the break, and grabbed an equaliser 10 minutes into the second half after Watford keeper Heurelho Gomes brought down Mohamed Salah in the area.

With six minutes to half-time, Stephen Ward doubled their lead before Vokes scored his second.

Captain Cahill was sent off just 14 minutes into the game as Burnley went on rampage, scoring three goals in the first half.

The Blues got off to an terrible start at Stamford Bridge when Gary Cahill was dismissed inside 14 minutes for a tackle on Steven Defour.

After a one-two with the excellent Jack Cork, Ward strode onto the return pass and let fly with a rasping left-foot shot that flew into the top-right corner.

The result is also the first time Chelsea has lost an opening league game of the season since 1998.

It's a pretty stunning fall from grace for Aguayo, who was arguably the best kicker in college football history. Although it was his only attempt, Folk's kick was two yards further than Aguayo's longest field goal in 2016.

Chelsea are the league's best team when it comes to opening the season.

This means that David Luiz may have to move up from defense into central midfield alongside N'Golo Kante against Tottenham. The Brazilian curled an exquisite 69th-minute cross into space behind the Burnley defence and substitute Morata stooped to guide a diving header past Heaton, just nine minutes after coming on. Vokes had a goal disallowed shortly after - but it was an omen for Chelsea.

Morata thought he had a second soon after but his strike was chalked off for offside and Chelsea's chances of fighting back appeared to be over when Cesc Fabregas received a second yellow card on 81 minutes.

With two extra men, and a two goal lead intact, Burnley looked set to hold on. Robbie Brady lined up a free-kick and it looked like it was going to be a ideal end to a great result in the capital, but his set-piece came back off the foot of the post.
